His scientific interests lie mostly in Biochemistry, Cathepsin, Cell biology, Cysteine and Proteases. His study in Biochemistry is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Molecular biology and Cystatin. He is studying Cathepsin S, which is a component of Cathepsin.
The concepts of his Cell biology study are interwoven with issues in Autophagy, Apoptosis, Lysosome and Proteolysis. His research integrates issues of Papain, Enzyme inhibitor and Chagas disease in his study of Cysteine. His Proteases research integrates issues from Legumain, Cleavage and Protease.
His primary areas of investigation include Biochemistry, Cathepsin, Molecular biology, Cathepsin B and Cysteine. His works in Cathepsin L, Cathepsin O, Enzyme, Proteases and Peptide sequence are all subjects of inquiry into Biochemistry. His work carried out in the field of Cathepsin brings together such families of science as Cancer, Cancer research, Cathepsin D and Cell biology.
His Cell biology research incorporates elements of Autophagy, Apoptosis, Lysosome and Proteolysis. His work in Molecular biology tackles topics such as Recombinant DNA which are related to areas like Escherichia coli. His Cysteine research includes elements of Papain and Cystatin.
Vito Turk spends much of his time researching Cathepsin, Cell biology, Biochemistry, Cathepsin B and Molecular biology. His Cathepsin study incorporates themes from Proteases, Cysteine, Cathepsin D and Cystatin. Vito Turk interconnects Apoptosis, Programmed cell death, Lysosome and Proteolysis in the investigation of issues within Cell biology.
His Biochemistry study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Biological network. His work on Cathepsin A and Cathepsin O as part of general Cathepsin B study is frequently connected to Microglia, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. His research investigates the connection between Molecular biology and topics such as Cathepsin E that intersect with problems in Cathepsin L1 and Cathepsin S.
His primary scientific interests are in Cathepsin, Cell biology, Proteases, Proteolysis and Programmed cell death. His work in Cathepsin S and Cathepsin L are all subfields of Cathepsin research. The Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as Protease and Cathepsin D.
His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Matrix metalloproteinase and Rheumatoid arthritis, Immunology. His research investigates the connection between Proteolysis and topics such as Lysosome that intersect with problems in Mitochondrion, Apoptosis, Cystatin and Cysteine. His Programmed cell death study combines topics in areas such as Autophagy, Cytoplasm, Cysteine protease and Plasmodium berghei.
